Yogi's Music Newsletter 11-18-06

Hey, Lovers of music from all over the Planet!

I am starting to ramp up promoting my group, so I will probably be only sending out one of the newsletters each month. There's so many good gigs I want to put on here, but it takes several hours to prepare, so that's why. I'm doing my best!

Today I want to plug my band's next showcase gig, tell you about Tita Lima, the beautiful Samba singer from San Paolo, and then plug many other great gigs. Here's the hotlinks to this time's featured musicians:

TITA LIMA Gorgeous Brazilian Tropicalia/Bossa/Samba

Hey, I have to tell y'all about Tita Lima. She's a gorgeous young lady from San Paolo, Brazil that I caught at Nectar Lounge last Wednesday. She's on tour and already out of the country - sorry I didn't find out in time to give you the heads up on her show. Her father is a well-known musician in Brazil, and she sings like she was born to make music (which she was, practically speaking!) She also plays guitar and does a big chunk of her mixes. Go check her sound out and tell her I sent you to her site! Let's bring her back to Seattle!
